aspect of what we do to improve the economic climate of san francisco. the america's cup will help us nationally and internationally. it creates business opportunities and jobs. the contribution to the economy is obvious. visitor's events, international television exposure, tax revenue, the less obvious but just as direct of impacts of this event will last way beyond the 34th america's cup races and the 5th america's cup races and the 36th and the 37th. [applause] >> racing to be hosted here in san francisco. the less economic -- the less obvious impact comes from development that is happening right here, right now on this waterfront. aside from improvements to the america's cup locations that will be discussed later in this program, there are several transformative projects that when combined with the event's facilities will make this waterfront a more vibrant, and more enjoyable place for all. the new cruise ship terminal will be america's cup neighbors. from these venues and these venues will benefit from the america's cup spectators. the america's cup is enabling in increased acce
the 1984 olympics in los angeles in the fin class. he has more america's cup races than anyone in the history of the planet. he has one four of the last five america's cups. i was thinking about this, mr. mayor, he has had particularly good success in california thinking about the olympics in 1984, but the competition -- thanks jennifer, the competition is exceedingly tough. this may be the highest quality field of challengers ever. team new zealand for sure. the italian sure, the swedish team, the french are very strong as well and we'll see how the chinese and the koreans do. >> i'll give them all my number. >> what are you looking for, economic development or some other kind of development?

the changes of the global economy, the commodities have affected not only latin america's economy in the sense of their own sense of destiny on also affected u.s. policy. what we will do is will have hal speak about 10, 15 minutes about the book, and then we will have a discussion going from my immediate left, the managing director at hsbc, and felicia, who is master teacher at new york university. also adjunct professor at the latin american studies program at new york university. so i just want to give a shameless plug to the journal that we publish your, america's quarterly. but enough about me. hal, let's talk about her book. tell us about the conclusions you have in your book. why it's called a passionate cause a problem with their own members with a meeting of u.s. dominance in the region. >> thanks very much. enough about me, what do you want to know about me? well, thanks to the council of the americas for hosting this. thanks to you all for turning out this evening. i want to start with a question. could it be that the first time in history the united states needs latin america more t
, then the america's cup i think we can all perhaps start to see will be simply sensational. they have raced all over the world and i can tell you that san francisco was at the front of the cue when the natural attributes were handed out. to me, the bay area is the perfect sailing stadium. you have strong winds. you have an open relatively deep waterfront where the boats can cut the sail right in close against the peers and so forth and having competed in the olympics in america's cup quite a few times, i have seen firsthand the positive and enduring benefits, and, jennifer, you mentioned a lot of them, that such an iconic world class boating event can bring, not just to the host city, but often the host nation. so i'm convinced that people that will eventually look back on this america's cup, instead of calling it the 34th america's cup or even the 2013 america's cup, i believe it will come to be known as the san francisco america's cup.

of the america's cup event village will happen sometime around the commencement around the lucy vuitton cup which tom says starts on july 5. the ambition is to have parts of the village open to the public from may on wards or earlier if we can manage it. on the other side of the bay bridge will be pit road. this is where the team bases will be and where the fans will get up close and by up close, really close to the spectacular boats that will compete in the summer of 2013. so in the past, in the past, the teams have had 15-foot high fences around the bases. lucy, you would remember that sort of treatment and the security guards and so forth that prevented the public from coming in. that's all about to change. people will be able to see these boats close up and see them lifted into and out of the water and see the teams getting on and off the boats and working on the boats and making the changes to make them fast on the racecourse. and this activity and interaction won't be typical of weekend long sporting events or it won't be like a weeklong festival like fleet week it. will go on for months. o
america's cup or even the 2013 america's cup, i believe it will come to be known as the san francisco america's cup. [applause] >> i think i said sometime ago and i have always believed that the america's cup, because of this is fortunate, very, very fortunate, very lucky in fact to have san francisco. but san francisco is also lucky i believe to have the america's cup and here is why. where we are today will be the race village. for fans this will be their headquarters. this will become a social hub of the city, not just for the america's cup, but for the long term also. in the olympic games and america's cup that i have seen firsthand, enduring legacy that such waterfront developments have it leaves for a long period of time. yet here in san francisco, we are only minutes away from the downtown offices and hotels and the embarcadero is the main tourist route along the city front. the official opening of the america's cup event village will happen sometime around the commencement around the lucy vuitton cup which tom says starts on july 5. the ambition is to have parts of t

the america's cup in america. and all this racing will take place right off the city front. the start line will be adjacent to marina green where the golden gate bridge at a backdrop. from the start, it will take the boats probably less than a minute to scream towards the first turn which would be only about 150 yards off the shoreline, so close to the water's edge in fact that you'll be able to hear the sound of the winches and the voices of the crew. i'm talking about polite voices. the regatta director has just issued a directive about the salty language needing to be a little sweeter. then boats will rip up and down the bay. on that first leg, they'll approach speeds close to 50 miles per hour, but they'll rip up and down the bay over a three-lap course and then the finish line will be right off here at piers 27 and 29. so the america's cup competition will be 162 years old, this fantastic trophy next year, yet it will have seen nothing like what's about to happen in san francisco. this will be the fastest, most fan friendly cup there has ever been. you'll have the drama and excitement
>> our guest on "this is america" is dr. zbigniew brzezinski, former national security adviser to president jimmy carter, professor of american foreign policy at johns hopkins university, and author of the new york times best-seller, "strategic vision: america and the crisis of global power." thank you for coming over and visiting once again. >> once again is right. >> you are right around the corner from us now. >> we are neighbors. >> we are neighbors indeed. how has the world changed in the last 20, 25 years? >> fundamentally. fundamentally. the last 25 years have seen the end of a century-long conflict for domination of the world -- imperial germany, nazi germany, soviet communism, and then american supremacy. in the last 20 years that supremacy has become more difficult and uncertain while the world has become more politically awakened. today all of humanity is politically active, and the balance of global power has shifted from the west to the east. so we live in a politically very, very different world. >> when people say american power is on the wane, is that real or im
the harbor fund and general fund. thanks, mike. >> good afternoon, commissioners. mike martin, america's cup project director from the office of economic and workforce development. i definitely want to echo the words plaintiff benson that's been an extraordinary effort to get here and i think we're all pretty excited about what's taking shape as s a very exciting and extraordinary event here in san francisco. the specific things i want to come up and talk about a little bit do relate to the lease disposition agreement that's before you. there are a little bit sort of less directly port related but underscore what it's going to be happening at the port. the first and most significant of these is the security relationship and this is something that was called on the host and venue agreement that was originally executed among the city, america's cup organizing committee of the nonprofit supporting the city's effort and america's cup event authority. nar agreement acoc would procure a bond or security instrument that would secure the performance of both the city and acoc to ensure the event come
't lower taxes. but when america does well, you should be proud to keep that system going so the next people can come and use the roads in internet and stuff but you didn't have to buy yourself. that return on investment for the american people is violated when you give massive tax cuts to the people at the top. then the people at the top can benefit from america, but they don't have to pay it back. it leaves the middle class in freefall. i think the books content bush tax cuts expire, it's time for wealthy america to pay america back. that should be over. it was not tough enough on that, the first part of obama's presidency. the buffett rule is pushing him in the right direction. i think what is amazing is that warren buffett is virtually known as a wealthy person who is smart and wealthy. but he wasn't a political -- he didn't have a political idea. but obama was a genius to draw a connection between a wealthy person like that. and his secretary, and use that relationship to tell a whole story. that is obama at his best. he has done something well. he has done some things poorly, bu

, sad for america: he never returned to his home. at 34, john singleton copley was already one of the best and most popular painters in the american colonies. the young american artist john trumbull said of him, "an elegant-looking man dressed in fine maroon cloth with gold buttons, this dazzling to my unpracticed eye, but his painting, the first i'd ever seen deserving the name, riveted--absorbed my attention and rewed my desires to enter upon such a pursuit." copley had more work than he could do. early in his career, he mastered the popular rococo style: rich texture of laces and lush fabrics, empty faces. but like many pre-revolutionary americans, copley could not suppress his belief in individual and personal expression. ( drumbeats ) taxation without representation: copley's father-in-law, an english merchant, was importing tea to america. copley felt he could not speak out against his family, nor could he defend them. seeking his artistic heritage, he sailed for europe. it wasn't long before he became part of that heritage, a forerunner in the great romantic movement. st
. so, you know, the things -- what we should realize is that as much as many of our things in america have been beacons to others in the world, our actions are paid -- they are paying attention to our actions and people, even those that are not formally educated, are very sophisticated. they know more about what's going on in america that we -- that we know about what's going on in their country. >> absolutely. >> i think wanted to use that flip to tell the rest of the store write which is margaret marshall came to the united states, named first to massachusetts supreme judicial court and supreme justice and wrote the landmark decision that allowed same-sex couples to marry saying that that right was guaranteed in the messages of the state constitution. tell us about the right for gay rights and how that is seen. there a parallel with the earlier stories? >> yeah. i do. i mean, i -- i would like to flip it for whatever -- i was pretty down in the first part. but i was talking about. i mean, i live in virginia. and my legislature is -- there is no other word for it. they are neandertha
the america's cup and thamplinge the city, event authority and port of san francisco for everything that you're doing to bring this event here. i think it's important to recognize that for every $300 spent in a hotel, additional $700 are spent in businesses surrounding the hotels. and those are often small businesses in other areas of the city. events that market san francisco to a global market have an effect and benefit beyond the event itself. while the america's cup will be wonderful for the city, there's also a way of getting a word out there we have an incredible city and world class waterfront and some of the changes coming about because of america's cup will help us for generations to come. we wanted make sure that you know we support this and urge you to approve the recommendations that are before you today. thank you so much for your time. >> thank you. norman pierce, is this for 9-a? go ahead. >> norman pierce. i'm a sailor and staff commoner and big supporter of this project from day wufpblet i'm so happy it's gotten to this point. anticipating positive response from you as a gro
't tell james madison that. and so deeply engrained was this notion of the new israel in america, that at the conclusion of the american revolution in 1783, there was a debate between the u.s. leadership over what was going to be the great seal of the united states. and a certain group of american leaders thought that it should be the bald eagle but another group said no, the image of the united states, the seal should show moses leading the children of israel out of bondage and into the promised land. there was this heated debate. america came this close to having moses as its national symbol. you got the folically challenged bird instead. but the authors of the moses seal were none other than thomas jefferson and benjamin franklin. so they had internalized the biblical narrative. now, for many of this generation of founding mothers and founding fathers, the fact that they were the new israel meant that they had a kinship relationship with the old israel, the jewish people. it meant since they were -- they had inherited a new promised land. they had a connection with the old pro
or mortgage lenders, when it's good for business, good more the marketplace, it's good more america! [applause] plus we don't expect government to solve all our problems. and we shouldn't try. i learned from my mom that no amount of education can take the place of a parent's love and attention, sometimes getting in your face and telling you what you need to do. as a young man i worked with catholic churches who taught me that no program can take the place of the kindness and commitment of a caring soul. not every regulation is smart. not every tax dollar is spent wisely. not every person can be helped who refuses to help themselves. that's what we believe. people have to make an effort. people have to try hard. but, that's not an excuse to tell the vast majority of responsible, hard-working americans you're on your own. unless you're lucky enough to have parents who can lend you the money, you cannot go to college. even if you pay your premiums every month, you're out of luck if an insurance company decides to drop your comfortable when cu need it most. that's not america. that's not who we ar

a $787 billion stimulus. one third of it is tax cuts for america. republicans and democrats like tax cuts. that is some creasy idea. nobody knows that. most people think obama raised his taxes. he cut taxes for 95% of americans. the other referred is for the state's keeping copps on the beat. when we went down we went down hard, and if every state had to follow its budget when we went down, they didn't have to lay off teachers, firefighters, nurses, first responders. one-third of the stimulus was keeping copps on the beach and kindergarten teachers hoping your kids. nobody knows that. so the stimulus that was successful in terms of quote on quote saving jobs that were created or saved, you have to teachers' jobs. nobody knows. so that was the kind of mistake even when you do the right thing and you don't know how to get the credit for it, that demoralizes people, and so i think that both sides could have performed better, not surprisingly. outsiders and insiders. the book is an attempt to help us learn from those mistakes so we can go forward. >> host: what about the bush tax cut, somethi

[cheers and applause] america will have a choice on november 6 and nevada will make it loud and clear clear that you want to make sure we have a president that does not want to take america on the path to europe. you want a president that will keep americans holding true to the principles that made us the great nation we are for it once -- one person i spoke with came from outside this country. he came here and said people around the world for generations have looked at this country as the land of opportunity. that is what has drawn people here. free people, pursuing their dreams freely, building enterprises that employ one another and that is what has made america the power house we have become. this president does not understand that because he has not lived that. instead, on almost every dimension, he has made it harder for our economy to come back and put people to work. i understand it because i have lived it. i have met with people day in and day out
